Police say a man wanted in connection with a report of shots fired and an attempted burglary in Huntley was taken into custody following an hours-long manhunt Sunday morning.
The Huntley Police Department responded around 8:30 p.m. Saturday to the area of Route 47 and Del Webb Boulevard for a report of a motorist assist.
Huntley Deputy Police Chief Michael Klunk said an officer was en route to the location when dispatch received another 911 call for a report of gunshots being fired by a person who had fled the disabled vehicle.
Several officers responded to the area and a short time later a 911 caller reported a male white with a beard, wearing camouflage shorts, a gray tank top and carrying a blue backpack was attempting to break into a home in the 12100 block of White Tail Lane.
Several additional 911 calls were also received describing a similar person in the neighborhood, Klunk said.
Huntley police officers located the suspect in the area but he fled between houses on foot.
Additional law enforcement resources were requested to assist in locating the subject and a several-hour search was conducted utilizing several police departments, canines, drones and night vision.
The suspect was located and taken into custody by around 12:50 a.m. Sunday in the area of the 13100 block of Crestview Drive in Huntley.
Klunk said the suspect suffered leg injuries and was transported to a local hospital for examination. Klunk did not say if any firearms were recovered from the suspect or not.
No charges have been filed in the incident yet and an active investigation continues.
The Huntley Police Department is asking for additional information from the public who may have had an encounter or video with the suspect.
